RESIDENTIAL SPRINKLERS Although we protect our businesses from fire, what actions do we take to protect our families, our homes, and our possessions from fire? Millions of Americans have installed smoke alarms in their homes in the past few years, but a smoke alarm can only alert the occupants to a fire in the house ... it cannot contain or extinguish a fire. Residential sprinkler systems can!
The Fire Marshal's Office of the Riverside Fire Authority applies the regulations set forth in both State and Local codes. The Division assists with the development of safe environments in new occupancies and maintains fire and life safety in existing buildings. The following standards are applied: International Fire and Building Codes, National Fire Protection Association, Riverside Fire Authority Development Guide, and the Riverside Fire Authority Address Policy.
